Easy Microwave Cleaning Solution

 Hi everyone!  I am getting VERY honest on the blog today, showing you the nastiness that was my microwave.  Embarrassing isn't it? I'd read on pinterest that you could heat a bowl of water with vinegar in the microwave for 5 minutes, and then wipe the microwave down for an easy cleaning solution. 
I admit-I seriously doubted this would work.  But it did!  I simply pulled a normal cereal bowl out of my cabinet and filled it 3/4 full with regular tap water.  I then poured some white vinegar into the bowl as well (probably around 1/4 cup).  I then placed the bowl in the microwave and heated the water for 5 minutes.  Next I took the bowl out and wiped the inside of the microwave clean.  It took very little scrubbing.  Wonderful!
Now I'm curious-what easy cleaning solution do YOU have to share?  Please comment below! I'm excited to hear what tips I've been missing out on so I can put them to good use!
Happy Kitchen Cleaning,

  1. The last time I cleaned my oven using the self-cleaning option, I took the two racks out as the manufacturer recommended. I dreaded the job of cleaning them, so I went on the Internet looking for an easy way to do it. Here's what I tried, and it worked! Spread an old towel on the bottom of your bathtub, put the racks on top, and fill the tub with hot, soapy water (dish liquid) enough to cover the racks. Let them soak for several hours (or overnight) and then rub the brown gunk with a Scotch-Brite scour pad (or a generic version) and it will come right off. I've never cleaned my oven racks so fast ever before! Donna B.
